Tired of cutting through the side of your hollow forms, turned lidded boxes, Christmas ornaments, bowls, plates, platters? Tired of leaving your projects too thick in some areas and too thin in others? Frustrated by having to stop and measure wall thicknesses with calipers that are either too large or inaccurate?
Ron Brown's Best Turners Laser Guide shows you exactly where the tool is cutting in real time as you are making the cut. It is otherwise impossible to see inside a spinning shavings filled vessel. No more constant stopping to measure wall thickness or hollowing too deep and going through the bottom or the side. A laser beam tells you exactly where a point on the cutting edge is located directly beneath the dot on the outside of your project as you go.
I have designed it to mount on the ferrule or handle of any lathe tool normally used for hollowing including bowl gouges, all scrapers like Easy Wood Tools, Mike Hunter tools, John Jordan tools, Sorby hollowing tools, etc. Surprisingly, it also fits most captive hollowing systems on the market today. If you have a system and didn't purchase the laser pointer option, the Turners Laser Guide may be something to consider. The Turners Laser Guide easily and quickly moves from one tool to the next in about a minute including adjustments.
It uses one AAA battery for power so is long lasting and cheap to replace and easy to find anywhere.
